Hi there,

my name is Michael Schroeder and I am a professor of bioinformatics at 
the TU Dresden, Germany.
My group works on protein interactions extracted from literature and 3D 
protein structures.

We developed an ontology-based literature search engine, 
www.GoPubMed.org, which is an example of a semantic web application. 
It's online, so please try it. On the site you also find a paper if you 
are interested.

We collaborate a lot with people from biology and medicine to analyse 
high-throughput data such as gene expression and RNAi data. I am sitting 
in the Biotec, an interdisciplinary center with groups dedicated to 
genomics, proteomics, developmental genetics, tissue engineering, 
cellular machines, biophysics, and numerous biotec start-up companies. 
We recently won a grant to set up a 60M EUR center for regenerative 
medicine. We have also access to a recently bought supercomputer with 
over 3000 CPUs and 2 TB *shared* memory.

I am also coordinator of the bioinformatics group of the REWERSE project 
(www.rewerse.net), which develops rule-based approaches for the semantic 
web and the Sealife project, which will develop a semantic grid browser. 
The idea is to build a browser, which uses ontologies and textmining to 
link bioinformatics services to relevant entities on the page on the fly.

Have a nice weekend, Michael
